Home of Hollywood screenwriter Lela Rogers and birthplace
of famed actress/dancer/singer Ginger Rogers
The museum will no longer have regular open hours after September 30, 2019. We made a decision to open the house as a short-term vacation rental throughout the year after that date, and open to group tours on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays by appointment year-round. We'll also have special events four times a year that will be open to the public. So, we are NOT CLOSING!
Find out about Hollywood Actor and Dancing Legend Ginger Rogers during a tour at her birthplace in Independence, Missouri. Local dance and acting groups are welcome to tour the home free of charge during the month of August.
Regular hours are Wednesday and Saturday 10 am - 3 pm. but special arrangements may be made for tours on other days.
All groups must be accompanied by at least one adult. One adult may attend at no charge. Reservations required. Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our group tour page:
